There were times in Saturday's game against Towson when No. 11 Loyola threatened to blow away its crosstown rival. Then there were the final five minutes, when the Greyhounds all but imploded. Greyhounds goalie Jake Hagelin (Boys' Latin) stopped a desperation one-hopper by Matt Lamon (St. Mary's) as time expired, however, and host Loyola held on for a 7-6 win that injected more than a little anxiety into the announced 2,412 at brand-new Ridley Athletic Complex. "You never take a win in Division I for granted.

Loyola reaped the fruits of Saturday's 15-6 victory over Patriot League foe Boston University, earning the conference regular-season title and the top seed in the upcoming league tournament. And nothing will change regardless of the outcome of Thursday's game against Bucknell at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore at 7 p.m. But the No. 1 Greyhounds (11-1 overall and 7-0 in the league) want to finish out the conference schedule with a perfect record. “There are goals we set forth at the beginning of the year to accomplish,” coach Charley Toomey said on Tuesday afternoon.

Erik Etherly had 12 points and seven rebounds to lead visiting Loyola to a 51-41 men's basketball victory over Manhattan in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game Friday night at Draddy Gymnasium. Anthony Winbush added nine points and eight rebounds for the Greyhounds (15-6, 7-2 MAAC), who have won three in a row and six of seven. Emmy Andujar came off the bench to score 12 points and grab 16 rebounds for the Jaspers (5-14, 3-6), who have lost three in a row and nine of 11. Loyola slowly built a lead as both teams struggled to score early in the opening half.

Boston University arrived at Ridley Athletic Complex on Saturday with 30 freshmen on its roster and up against its third consecutive ranked opponent. It was a tall order for any team, much less one in its first season in Division I. The Terriers then shocked the announced 1,004 in attendance when Mount St. Mary's transfer Alex Paroda scored less than a minute into the game. But an 8-1 run spanning the first and second halves sent No. 1 Loyola Maryland on its way to a 15-6 win and the Patriot League regular-season championship.  Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey said the Terriers played his team tougher than the vast majority of the first-year programs he has faced in his nine seasons at Loyola.

The bottom of Gilman's lineup helped the Greyhounds reach the top of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference on Thursday. Gilman's No. 2 doubles team of Jay Barrett and Will Faison rallied to win a tiebreaker that let the Greyhounds tie host Mount St. Joseph in the conference's title match. The only match left was at No. 3 singles where Galen Rende of Gilman was finishing off his 6-1, 4-6, 6-1 victory over Tristan Boustany. That completed Gilman's come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the Gaels in the A Conference championship.

For Loyola, only two positive developments came out of its game against Manhattan last night.First, the Greyhounds won't have to face Manhattan in the quarterfinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament. And second, B.J. Pendleton scored the 1,000th point of his career.The Greyhounds were pounded by the defending champions of the MAAC, as Manhattan built a 14-point lead at the half and rolled to an 84-71 victory at Reitz Arena.Manhattan (16-9, 9-4) is most likely headed to the No. 2 seed for the MAAC tournament, next weekend in Albany, N.Y.

Spurred by Zach Thornton, sixth-ranked Loyola scored early and often as it rolled to a 21-5 victory at UMBC last night.Thornton, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior midfielder, scored three of the game's first four goals, firing bullets from in close. UMBC goalie Chris Brown had almost no chance against any of them.The Greyhounds (8-1) next play at home Tuesday against No. 4 Syracuse. The next game for UMBC (4-6) is at home against Towson State next Saturday.Thornton opened the night's scoring unassisted when he dodged past two defenders and fired one over Brown's right shoulder 2:49 into the game.

The Loyola men's basketball team has played some great games as they've risen to the top of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference standings. Sunday's game at Reitz Arena will not be regarded as one of them. Down by just four at the half, the Greyhounds (19-6, 12-3) were out-rebounded, out-hustled and out-everything-elsed in a MAAC loss to Fairfield (15-10, 10-4) 68-51. Erik Etherly and Robert Olson lead the Greyhounds with 17 points apiece. Rakim Sanders led a very balanced Fairfield team with 13 points.

Seven years ago, when Nichole Schiro had already wowed upperclassmen on her high school team by scoring goals at will, her soccer coach at Okemos (Mich.) High sat her down in his office. Rob Antcliff wanted to know what his young star wanted to accomplish in her career. Naturally, the modest freshman listed the basics — play well, help the team win, maybe try to play in college. Then she blurted out something that still sticks out to Antcliff. "Well, I like to break records," Schiro said.

Baltimore native and Loyola High alumnus David Metzbower, a former Princeton associate head coach, has joined the Loyola men's lacrosse staff as an assistant, coach Charley Toomey announced Thursday. Metzbower will start with the defending national champion Greyhounds beginning Monday. He spent 20 years as an assistant coach, offensive coordinator and goalie coach at Princeton, the final seven as the Tigers' associate head coach. Most recently he was head coach for two years at Malvern (Pa.)

Charley Toomey and the rest of the coaching staff at top-ranked Loyola Maryland aren't afraid to try something new. That could help explain why freshman midfielder Romar Dennis got his first start in 11 games, joining redshirt freshman Brian Sherlock and senior Matt Sawyer in Saturday's 7-6 double-overtime decision against Navy. The move bumped sophomore Tyler Albrecht to the second line with senior Kevin Ryan and sophomore Jeff Chase (Boys' Latin). Toomey said the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League)

No. 1 Loyola Maryland is one win away from doing something it has not done before. If the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League) can defeat Boston University (1-9, 1-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m., they will host the conference tournament semifinals April 25 and the final two days later at Ridley Athletic Complex. Loyola never hosted the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, which was awarded to the previous year's regular-season champion. Denver hosted that league's tournament in 2011 and 2012, and when the Greyhounds won the title in 2012, the ECAC elected to switch the host site to Hobart.

Attackmen Justin Ward and Brian Schultz had put themselves in this game-winning situation at least a hundred times, first with the Maryland RoughRiders, their club team, and then later in college. So when the situation presented itself, they delivered. Schultz took a quick cross-crease feed from Ward (Old Mill) to finish a fast break 12 seconds into the second overtime, and No. 1 Loyola Maryland defeated Navy, 7-6. Schultz's goal finished off a play that started with a loose ball picked up at midfield by midfielder Brian Sherlock.

Loyola Maryland and Navy have split six all-time meetings and will meet for the first time as Patriot League rivals. Navy won the first three games in 1939, 1942 and 1943, but Loyola has won the past three contests, in 1993, 2010 and 2011. The No. 1 Greyhounds (9-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference) have won nine consecutive games after dropping a 14-13 overtime decision to Virginia in the season opener on Feb. 6. A defense that is tied for fourth in Division I at 7.4 goals per game has been anchored by a pair of seniors in goalkeeper Jack Runkel and defenseman Joe Fletcher.

With five weeks remaining before the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament, there is no clear-cut favorite to win the championship, but No. 1 Loyola Maryland appears to be the team to beat. The Greyhounds (9-1) have good speed and depth. They are well-coached, creative on defense and offense, and strong in the middle of the field as far as midfielders and goalie. Coach Charley Toomey won't say it, but Loyola has been the most consistent team since the season started, and that alone separates it from the rest of the field.

Charley Toomey is one of those rare people who is coaching at the university from which he graduated. He was a two-time All-America goalkeeper at Loyola before becoming the program's head coach for the 2007 season. But Toomey grew up in Annapolis, rooted for Navy and spent one year as the coach of the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) and two years as an assistant coach for the Midshipmen. That's why he admitted on Wednesday that he may feel slightly torn as he leads the No. 1 Greyhounds (9-1 overall and 5-0 in the Patriot League)

Loyola Maryland preserved its top ranking with a 10-8 decision against Patriot League foe Colgate on Saturday despite the absence of starting defenseman David Manning because of an unspecified injury. But the junior is expected to return and start when the Greyhounds (9-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference) visit Navy (4-5, 3-3) at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Saturday at noon. “He'll be back,” coach Charley Toomey said on Wednesday morning. “We anticipate David starting this weekend.

Colgate coach Mike Murphy sees a lot of similarities when he looks at Loyola Maryland and the Raiders' last opponent, Cornell, especially in their respective ability to pounce on transition opportunities and turn them into goals. He said his team's ability to understand and account for that will go a long way to determining the outcome against the Greyhounds on Saturday in Hamilton, N.Y. "I think as you look at this team you have to be great in transition," Murphy said. "They are lethal six-on-six on offense but may be one of best transition teams with [midfielder]
